I went down there yesterday and caught a whole herd of fish. It was a little brusy with drifts coming down, but I don’t think it is quite so bad now.
I was rod and reel fishing yesterday for carp on worms. Carp fishing was awesome. We caught a lot of carp everywhere we set up. We even lost a $150 fishing pole. Jerked it plumb out of the boat over a three foot rail on our pontoon boat. They are aggressive little boogers when they get a run at it.
I talked to some guys who were in here earlier and they caught a few white cats.
It’s not great but it’s not bad. You could catch some fish.
It was my son-in-law who lost the pole. He thought about jumping in. I told him, ‘Good luck, Chuck.’ If you are going to do that, you have to immediately make your decision. You can’t wait and go, ‘Oh,’ then decide to jump in. It’s pointless if you can’t jump and grab it at the same swath.
That ain’t nuthin’. You’ve got a Shakespear rod and a Garcia reel. You could have more. But I made him a deal on another one.
I thought it was funny, but he didn’t think it was so great. As soon as it went in, I just went, ‘Cha ching.’ He gave me some kind of evil look. I don’t know what his problem is.”
“It was a big fish. It hit harder than the rest of them did. He had three poles and that was the best one he had.”
“The catching is probably better now than the fishing. You could catch fish if you could stand the heat.”
